Busy, busy, busy

Wow, I have SO MUCH to blog about now, but I have SO LITTLE time to do it! Being an RA is hectic to say the least. Anyways, I have now met the other RAs, plus Ryan, the RD. They are all pretty much awesome, and if I keep this blog up, they will be making appearances definitely. We've been wandering around Philly for a couple of days, and I love it dearly.

My real reason for popping on here is to preserve a wonderful piece of humor, which hopefully, you see somewhere on here. Not quite sure about this formatting business. That bit of hilariousness was drawn by Frak, one of the hosts of PotterCast, and the writer of a wonderful blog as well.

Ok, I've got to split (where did that term come from and why am I using it now?), because, quite literally, my next three days are scheduled down to minutes, leaving no time to get done the millions of things I have to get done.

New city, new thoughts

Here I am in Philadelphia! My window overlooks Broad Street and I have my new box fan going full blast. I can hear the traffic outside, because my windows are propped open, and already I recognize the rumble of the train underneath the building and the beep of the blind crosswalk. I'm meeting my RD Ryan and a couple of the other RAs for Chinese in 20 minutes, but I thought I would jot down a quick entry.

Dad and I squeezed into a sell-out Phillies game yesterday in the nosebleed section, but watching the Phanatic's antics and cheering for Pat Burrell made it great. We took the train there and back and while it wasn't horrible, NYC's is definitely cleaner and slightly less scary.

This afternoon after Dad left, I finished unpacking, and then I took a walk to find the buildings where my classes will be. They weren't hard to find at all, and it also was a very pretty walk.

Ok, I have to get ready, but I'm sure I'll have plenty to write about later. RA training is this wekk!

The down side

I really hate having to work so early in the morning. I thought that changing from night shift would mean I could do stuff at night, but nope. I have to get a good night's sleep so I won't die the next day. I guess it's really frustrating because a bunch of friends are getting together tonight, and a couple are leaving tomorrow for school, and I can't go. *blows air out in a huff*
